• Standard Form
• Vertex Form
• Factored Form
• Axis of Symmetry
What do these things have in common? They are all related to Quadratic Functions!
Do our students understand "how" they are all related? Can our students group together the standard form, vertex form and factored form of the same quadratic? Can they move from one to the other algebraically? Do they understand which form helps you find the roots? Which form helps you find the y-intercept?
This card set includes 6 different quadratic equations in standard form with 7 other related pieces to match each one. There are a total of 48 cards plus a set of blank cards to create your own. Or challenge your students to create their own.
Option 1- Have the entire class work together and group the cards.
Option 2- Have partners or small groups sort within a time limit at a math center or station.
Option 3- Use as an alternative assessment of individual students. Think outside of the paper-pencil quiz/test "box".
Use this after students have learned to...
1. Solve Quadratics by Square Root
2. Solve Quadratics by Factoring
3. Solve Quadratics by Completing the Square
4. Graph a Quadratic by Factoring or Critical Values
5. Moving from Standard to Vertex Form by Completing the Square (Odd middle term and front coefficient other than 1 are included)
6. How to find the Vertex and Axis of Symmetry
